“I gained a greater appreciation of Japan and its culture”
I joined Waterman in January 2015 after having enjoyed 11 years in Building Services Consultancy. I have also trained in the Japanese martial art of Aikido since 1999.
“Being a part of this team has definitely helped me grow into a better, more confident person”
I started my career at Waterman in October 2013 as a Document Controller within the Building Services team.
“When I finally found myself in the real working world after University, I had no doubt that engineering was my destiny”
Despite having a strong love of Literature and Arts, I surprised everyone when I picked Engineering at University.
“It is such a varied and diverse industry, filled with exciting opportunities and rewards – there is a niche for everyone”
I haven’t come into the industry with the traditional background of an engineering degree, but do not feel this has held me back.
“A career in engineering is a great challenge, very rewarding, and the industry is full of interesting people – I personally wouldn’t want to do anything else”
We will spend the vast majority of our lives at work and I wanted a career to keep me challenged and constantly learning, offering variety and versatility, and engineering certainly does that.
“There are many similarities within the two offices, although the lifestyle and weather is a little different!”
Waterman Group has strongly progressed and enhanced my technical and professional abilities, firstly in January 2015 when I started as a Graduate in Dublin, and secondly into my professional career in Sydney.
“I like engineering, it has a role in society and it’s a satisfying job”
Our COO of Property, Craig Beresford, gives insight into his career, his 31 years with Waterman, and talks about his passion for nurturing talent.
“I think it is extremely important to be passionate about your job”
I am one of the few qualified environmental lawyers who works within engineering. Having worked as a lawyer at the beginning of my career, I decided to take a career change about 15 years ago.
